    I haven't seen a mention of a 9800 variation for us CDMA users but if RIM was to release one, would you buy it & switch from the 9630's, 9650's, & Storms you have now?

    Only because I do not like slider phones. I like the touchscreen only and hope that the next generation Storm (not the Refresh) has all of this and more.

    5 0r 6 months? And knowing RIM, they will release it (in 5 or 6 months) with the exact same specs.

    Possibly, it would really have to outpace my Bold.

    Niiice.... By that time, any glaring kinks that pop up in the current GSM version will be addressed (hopefully) by RIM before they release the CDMA version. (Hopefully on the Verizon network!) I have a lot of hopes!

    Here in NYC I find that on really humid days or when my hands have any moisture on them it's impossible to get the QWERTY touch screen on my Storm I to type properly. (And yes, on these occasions I've dried my hands and the touchscreen and it still doesn't type properly.) For me, the slider keyboard would solve that issue nicely.

    Would have to have the CDMA + GSM capabilities of my Storm. That is just a killer feature when you have the best US network and (almost) global coverage anywhere else. Just love that.

    Excellent point! I just spent two weeks in Europe and didn't have to use a different phone. Here in the States, Verizon's CDMA network rules IMO. For those who need a 'global phone', you are right, the Storm is killer for also accessing GSM networks.

    Honestly depends on what the Storm3 turns out to be in March of next year.
    I would get the Torch over the Odin refresh (storm2 with OS6) ... but if the Storm3 really has its own pure touch OS and is as revolutionary as the 'secret testers' say it is, I will definitely go with that.

    So, I'm waiting for now still decently happy with my Storm2 (as long as I have my iPod touch)

    CDMA Torch would be on my radar as an option. 9650 is my fall-back ATM. I have until March to make that decision, so that wait time would be fine.

    I would say a qualified yes I would buy CDMA VZW Torch. Totally dependent on what HP/Palm does with second gen Pre hardware.

    Only because every carrier in my country is GSM.

    Such as the 8530 was better than the 8520, I am hoping the 9830 will be better than the 9800.

    So yes

    Like the 8530 and 8520?
    or the 8330 to the 8300, 8310, and 8320?
    Still not convinced?
    Lets go EVEN further back.
    maybe the 8230 and the 8230 will change your mind.

    I will have to make sure I keep a second CDMA phone on me while I travel since GSM coverage is very sketchy in about 30% of the area I travel for work, and CDMA is only Sketchy in about 10% of the Area.

    if I could get this phone as a CDMA / World Phone it would be perfect!

    I would expect Sprint/VZW to release it as a cdma/gsm the same they've done for the Tour, Bold, Storms. I've always liked knowing my Tour has the gsm compatibility for when I travel overseas.

    You sure he/she didn't mean that Odin Refresh (storm2 but with OS6?)

    Since, unless I'm mistaken, doesn't AT&T have complete rights over this phone? (As they did the bold 9000, etc)?

    I would like some concrete info on this, because right now I am seriously thinking about switching to ATT. I love this phone, I would like it better on VZW though.
